Gallbladder + Surgery

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLJune 7, 2004

On May 5th I had half my colon removed along with 3 feet of small intestine. They also found stones in my gallbladder, so removed that too. I seem to be recovering very well, but I think the problems I'm having is from having the gallbladder removed. I had considered this the lesser of the problems, but the more I find out, the more I'm convinced I have to learn more about this. I do very well when I don't have milk. Does this mean for the rest of my life? Does this mean I shouldn't have anything dairy? cheese/ice cream/cottage cheese? I was told not to eat broccoli, cauliflower, onions, spicy foods and beans. For the rest of my life?

Please tell me your experiences..........TIA.

PErsonal experience here is that I can and do eat anything after having my galbladder out a few years ago. I don't remember if I was sensitive for a while (or if I was I never connected it with any certain food).
